Known as the 'North Pole Airport,' one Rockland County family's holiday light display has once again received some national attention.

Perhaps you've heard their story from their appearance on Live with Kelly (and Ryan at the time) a few years back, or have been faithful followers for years, or maybe this is the first time you're being introduced to the Cirlin Family of New City North Pole Airport acclaim.

The Cirlin Family's North Pole Airport

As explained on their official website (yes, this display is that official), the Cirlin's have been expanding on their North Pole Airport for more than seven years.

What started as a simply airplane inflatable with two rows of lights on either side to make a runway, has turned into one of the largest holiday light displays in the tri-state area. Each year, we add more lights and more elements to our display because we have two goals. (1) Spread as much holiday joy as possible and (2) collect as much as possible for our two benefiting charities.

Located at 12 Oriole Road in New City (Rockland County), the Cirlin Family proudly assembles their display to benefit Angel Flight North East (life saving patient transport) and People to People of Rockland (food pantry).

They love sharing their own joy of the season with visitors, and their love for aviation with the community.
